'm liz cheney, in tonight for sean. the director of central intelligence, david petraeus stepped down, citing an extra-marital affair. after being married over 37 years, i showed extremely poor judgment, by engaging in an extra-marital affair. such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and the leader of an organization, such as ours. general petraeus, one of america's most respected and decorated military leader, served as the agency's head since april of last year. tonight, fox news has learned that the woman petraeus had an affair with is paula broadwell, who wrote a biography on petraeus, called "all in." their relationship was uncovered by the fbi, during an investigation unrelated to this matter. miss broadwell was interviewed on this very program in march. >> i love david petraeus. how well did you get to know him? >> pretty l. i spent 3 years, that started as my dissertation and became a book. i was imbedded into the headquarters and followed him around and gathered strategic information. >> >> pretty amazing. >> the time is garnering a lot of attention. we are only a few

the election. on friday, three days after, we learn that david petraeus, the head of the cia, was stepping down because of an extramarital affair. first i want to say that david petraeus is one of a greatest genuine hero. he is the first general in generations to turn around a war america was losing to iraq and 2006 and 2007 and he helped divert defeat. and for general petraeus to do what he did when he was director of the central intelligence agency, it was triple problem inmatic and opened him up to blackmail. for people who say it's a private matter, you are simply wrong. you can't have the cia director of america involved in a fair. once the affair was revealed, there was not a question in petraeus's mind that he needed to resign. but the story doesn't simply end there. now the white house claims that the president first received information about the affair on thursday. but a source close to journallest ron kessler, who will join me in a few minutes, says that's highly unlikely, and here's why. way back on october 10th kessler himself was informed by the petraeus affair by a veteran agent
